Josh Brolin: 'I used to smoke heroin'

Jan 10 2013, 4:44pm CST | by

Josh Brolin used to smoke heroin.

The 'Gangster Squad' actor admitted he was out of control in his teenage years when he got caught up with narcotics and crime but says filming 'The Goonies' saved him because he enjoyed working on movies too much to get completely addicted.

He told Men's Journal: "What'd I spend the money on? Drums and drugs. What else was there?

"I was the last guy to get into heroin - I smoked it - and the first to get out. I was around 16 or 17, so it was around the time of 'The Goonies'. But I liked working and learning, so it was very difficult for me to lend myself to that drug completely.

"I stole a lot of radios from cars. I could pop the detail with a coat hanger real easy. I got very good at it. I can still do it today. I could do it like that."

Josh, 44, who was arrested for public intoxication in Santa Monica, Los Angeles on New Year's Day (01.01.13), also revealed he served time in jail after getting involved in a brawl.

He said: "When I was 19 a fight broke out, and when the police came, I fought the police. I was pretty drunk. To this day, I have no idea what the fight was about. I woke up in jail. The police were very angry with me. Very angry. They kicked my ass really well. I was looking at a long time in prison. So, basically, I put everything I had - everything I had earned from a TV series I did - into lawyers. I did a bit of jail time. Not much, but a little bit."

DC has suffered some shame for backing off from a Marvel showdown, and Guardians Of The Galaxy's Josh Brolin quickly added insult to injury. As he explained what drew him to Marvel, he couldn't help but point out what the ...

Tom Hiddleston posts first look at ‘High Rise’ character: Dragonfly bait?

Aug 7 2014 9:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Back in the good old days, Tom Hiddleston used to tweet with some frequency, and he used to post a lot of photos. For the most part, he’s used his Twitter to promote his films and his UNICEF work, but after Thor 2: All About Loki came out, Tommy has been tweeting a lot less. I hope that changes. I miss his twee-ness on Twitter. I miss his selfies and his random thoughts about music and Shakespeare. Anyway, Tom is in Belfast now, working on High Rise. And he’s starting to tweet ...

Comic-Con: ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ And Oh Yeah, ‘Ant-Man,’ I Guess

Jul 28 2014 10:42am CDT | Source: The Superficial

Considering they have no less than 20 movies coming out at a time, Marvel gets the prime time-slot in Comic-Con‘s Hall H where this year they wheeled out the entire cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron – minus pregnant ScarJo – after an awkwardly brief Ant-Man panel. And if you’re wondering how to tell the two apart in the gallery, one has people sitting there with no clue what they’re doing because the director quit and they still haven’t seen a script ...
